He has studied music theory and music composition at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University and learned to play guitar in Tom's online guitar lessons. While taking lessons with Tom Hess, Mike has greatly improved his skills in the areas of speed, technique, phrasing and soloing. He is grateful to have found Tom Hess, because his guitar playing improved massively with his help.

Mike is also a student in Tom Hess’ Music Careers Mentoring Program.

This incredible program is designed for musicians interested in building a successful and stable career in the music industry. It is the greatest thing anyone serious about a career in the music business can invest in. Within the program, Mike worked together with many other musicians to network, put together musical projects and grow his music career. He also learned how to make a stable and secure living from music alone with Tom Hess's mentoring.

“I have been a student of Tom Hess for several years now. During that time I have advanced my playing and musical skills to a level I could never have imagined when I first began playing. I am also well on my way to developing the career I always dreamed about. Finally I am happy to say that I found a very good friend and mentor who is a never ending source of inspiration, motivation and wisdom for me. I am honored to know Tom and to study with him!”

A Note About Taking Guitar Lessons Online:

Many guitar players hesitate to take guitar lessons because they think they can learn everything on their own. Don't make this same mistake!

Working together with a guitar teacher helps you correct mistakes you would never see (or even know to look for). Plus, you get the motivation and support that helps you push through tough challenges, improve very quickly and become the guitarist you always wanted to be in less time than you could’ve imagined!

Get started taking guitar lessons today and you will thank yourself later when you are playing better than ever before.
